Hi all ;
was suggested to me that i write a small blog about the course i am doing and who i am doing it with so here i go.
It first started when i first off work due to Fibro. I knew that i couldn't carry on with my job any more. But then i found myself being at home with nothing to do and i wanted to work again but i knew the only way i was going to be able to get another decent job was to get some new qualifications to put me in a good stead of getting a less strenuous job. i found the site Vision2learn.co.uk they have less courses now than they did two years ago but they are free if you are on benefits i did not have a level 2 in ITQ that Information Technology Qualification. doing this at home suited me fine, i had tried to do it in a class room setting before on several occasion in the pass whilst i was working but never finished it. i completed the course on line and got my certificate. now i am doing, and have nearly finished my second course with vision2learn.co.uk which is Business and Administration.
there are benefits to doing courses on line with our condition as you do it when you feel like it. you have a set amount of hours per week they would like you to do but often this is not set in stone as long as you get your assignments in on time. the course is over a period of 4-5mths; depending on how long you take to complete each assignment because you can get extensions should you need them.
I am no bright spark and i find the courses fairly easy so i am sure you will too so why not give it a go. Others who are doing online course are bbc.co.uk/learn think i may try them at a later date should my brain not frazzel by then. lol. hope this have been of some help to someone and thanks Christine for suggesting this.
